L-05 Soil survey of a selected study area in Somaliland
Since the start of the war in 1991, no soil surveys have been undertaken and available soil data produced by SOGREAH has been lost, including maps showing spatial variability of soils.In view of the foregoing, and considering future planning activities in Somalia, there is a need to generate baseline data that provides an accurate reflection of the current status of natural resources. SWALIM conducted a soil survey using a combination of modern and conventional approaches (to overcome the various constraints within the study area) to map spatial variability of soils as a primary input to land suitability and land degradation assessment ,oriented towards a variety of users.
